Dear mrs. Maier,

So if I get this right, seeing that you are indeed head of marketing,
the fedora marketing team focusses their attention on promotion. Is
Fedora Core not adapted to fit the needs of it's members, by lets say
a broad survey, or is it estimated what the target audience wants?

Does the fedora marketing team have any firm strategic or operational
targets to obtain?

I'm mostly interested in fedora's marketing strategy since it is very
much different from a regular company. It is indeed non profitable and
you do not have a tangible item.

Friendly greetings,

Patrick
